"Northeast New Mexico: Mountain and Prairie" was our third 2-hour "airventure" with Bruce. Anna was her usual friendly and pleasant self, making sure we were set up for the best experience possible based on our schedule and the weather conditions during our stay in Santa Fe. We flew with Bruce on a picture-perfect day. As always, Bruce was on-time and... More

So my girlfriend and I show up at the santa fe municipal airport which is about 15 minutes from town. Went to Landmark aviaton to meet Bruce. He was right on time. And we sat down for a few minutes to get to know eachother and discuss the flight plans. Bruce is very personable and knowledgeable. We took a short... More

Awestruck is probably a good word to describe my reaction to the vistas we were privy to. I wonder just how many people have been able to see what we experienced. Anna was friendly and patient with all the questions we had pre-trip and worked with us around the weather and our schedule to make sure we could have the... More

The Enchanted Lands tour was our second two-hour tour with Southwest Safaris. Once again, Anna was very friendly and helpful with our reservation. As we were heading to the plane, Bruce told us to "prepare to be awesome-ized." I'm not sure when or if that word will be added to the dictionary, but we were thrilled with our experience. The...

The flight more than met our expectations. My wife and I had reserved a one hour flight and as Bruce, the pilot and owner, was explaining the tour I asked what else should I consider. Without being the least bit pushy he told us what we could see if we spent extra time in the air. We happily chose a... More

What a wonderful trip. All of the different landscapes were amazing and Bruce did a fantastic job as tour guide and pilot. Between the wild horses, the pueblo ruins and and all of the different desert zones it all came together for a trip to remember forever. Take the time for the tour and enjoy the memories.

Everything was fantastic. The guide was knowledgeable and funny and extremely kind, and the scenery was wonderful (of course). The only thing that's keeping me from giving this a "Super-Awesome" rating is the limited number of tours available for single passengers. To see the Painted Desert or Monument Valley, I would have had to pay for two. But that said,... More
